Verbal Confirmation: Assigning a Speech Label

Looking back to the early reaches of my blog, I saw I wrote a post for the Oct 1, 2014, Daily Post, Verbal Confirmation

To be, to have, to think, to move


I like to delineate.



I belong to a small not-for-profit which consists of a small cemetery in our care.  Once in a while, at the cemetery, I assist with burials.

We have a ledger outlining in orderly fashion who rests where in the cemetery.  It does delineate how those departed rest.

I delineate other aspects of my life as well.  I like to delineate.  In social media, people are delineated.

When I wrote this, the first of October, 2014, I put it in language that would ultimately become true of Twitter several months later–I had insight into what would be on the platform.  I was already thinking of Twitter users you follow being like lists of accounts you can define and utilize.

I simply look at random intervals of time and glance over what people are tweeting.  The different declarations of this and that is lively and that is how it is remarkable.  When a great recommendation to go to an article is posted, it is good fun.

There is more in life that can be delineated, of course.  It goes without saying that compartmentalizing tasks on an ongoing basis is very much delineation.  You can change gears from one objective to another by delineating them.

However you proceed, you can find yourself rapidly delineating your day so that things work in your favor.

I don’t play cards, but an instance where you can delineate is a hand of Solitaire.  If you do play one of the varieties of Solitaire, you know you delineate a deck of cards into piles.  The pleasure of the game, I imagine, is how chance itself can be delineated within the rules that bind the cards into a game.

I like to delineate, but I simply don’t play because I am too interested in how chance changes without the limit of rules on a deck of cards if it is possible to notice and observe such a thing.

Points of interest in a travel situation can also be delineated.  When somewhere new or far from home, you can explore a little and many do by delineating a number of spots where you can go.

With only a little time and energy, you can enjoy many sights and sounds having delineated what is now near to you.  I wish I’d traveled more.

The idea of here and there, once delineated, becomes accomplished.  To many people, that is a rewarding feeling, and you will have stories to tell back home.

I would like to feel I am characterized by the verb to delineate.  If I get the chance for advice, my favorite kind of advice is how to organize and make the most of your time.  Both productivity and efficiency interest me.

Every Monday morning I try to spend an hour on YouTube watching videos with the message to be motivated.  It may not immediately sound like the most constructive activity to perform.  It is a habit I have for starting the work week off with a positive mindset.

Ironically, I don’t place a lot of importance on spending time in full force or with efficacy and that kind of thing.  I just like to think about it!  I like to delineate.

Thought and action may well be the name of the game for delineation.

That is why I choose, as my favorite verb, to delineate.
